Maya Hawke, Christoph Waltz, John Turturro and Jon Hamm are set to star in Oscar-nominated “The Queen” director Stephen Frears’ new bittersweet drama film “Wilder & Me”.

“Stranger Things” breakout Hawke will star as Calista, a young musician whose life takes on a whole new meaning one summer while working on the set of the 1978 film “Fedora” – the penultimate film of legendary filmmaker Billy Wilder.

Calista follows Wilder to Munich and Paris to continue the shoot and experience her first love, whilst Wilder navigates the changing world of cinema in the twilight of his career.

Waltz will play Wilder who is known for directing some of the most famous Hollywood classics of all time including “Double Indemnity,” “Some Like It Hot,” “The Apartment,” “Witness for the Prosecution,” “The Seven Year Itch,” “Stalag 17,” “A Foreign Affair” and “Sunset Boulevard”.

Turturro will play Wilder’s lifelong friend and screenwriting partner I.A.L. Diamond, whilst Hamm will play actor William Holden.

Oscar winner Christopher Hampton (“The Father”) is adapting the script from Jonathan Coe’s popular novel “Mr Wilder and Me”. Jeremy Thomas is producing and filming will begin early 2025 in Greece.
